(アレックス シガイ)

Alex Shegay joined Maeda Laboratory as of 2019 as a post-doctorate researcher. 

Alex completed his BE(Civil) and more recently his PhD at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. His PhD thesis was on the subject of seismic performance of reinforced concrete walls. 

At Maeda Laboratory, Alex is involved in several projects, including full-scale testing of reinforced concrete wall-frame structures as well as material testing of CLT panels.
